Ashland 2016 Independence Day Parade
We were very pleased to enter our brand new automated truck in this year's parade. Our driver, Jeff Ekwall, drove it and our Group HR Manager came down from Portland with her daughter to ride in the parade.
They both shared what a very positive and extremely welcoming greeting they received as they drove by.
In other news - Driver Eli Savides, Customer Service Amy Miller & Jamie Rosenthal - our New Waste Zero Coordinator - worked in the Recology Ashland Sponsor tent fielding questions from customers that mostly wanted to know more about recycling in Ashland. We also acted as a support station with cold drinks for the awesome group of Master Recycler's that volunteer their time to help keep contamination out of the recycle stream.
We'd like to give a shout out to these Jackson County Master Recyclers who joined us
- Mark Newberger
- Candace Sinclair
- Steve & Carla DiFabion
- Bob Altaras
Also a shout out to the Waste Zero Recology Hero’s that helped make this event possible with their behind the scene contributions!
- Steve Ekwall, Lead Driver
- Don McDonald, Driver
- José Castillo, Driver
And volunteer Robert Adams who worked with Jamie from 5:30a until the very end!
Here is a photo of Jamie, Volunteers Rob and Master Recycler Candace working hard in the heat!
Thank you for being such valuable customers! Thanks for stopping by!
New On Call Program Replaces Stickers
Exciting News for Ashland Only Customers!
Those of you who use the Sticker Program should have received a pre-recorded message from our office regarding the upcoming change to the popular program.
Hello, this is Recology Ashland calling to inform you of a change with the Sticker program. According to our records, you have used our popular sticker program for trash or recycling pickup either currently or in the past.We’re excited to announce that beginning April 1st you will no longer have to purchase stickers for future pickups.
In place of stickers, you will simply contact us to request an “on-call” pickup. Contact us at least 24 hours in advance of your normal pickup day by phone or online.
Cost is the same rate you currently pay per sticker. We will then bill you for each pickup during the quarter.
We will continue to honor any stickers that you currently hold, just use them as normal until they are gone.
Thank you and have a great day!

Green Debris Program
This is a great way to deal with Green Debris Disposal year-round, and to keep organics out of the trash and our landfills. Green debris carts may be used for lawn clippings, plant trimmings, leaves, and other plant materials (if it grows, it goes). Branches must be less than three (3) inches in diameter, and must fit inside the cart provided. The cost for this service is $7.26 per month for Talent and Ashland residents. Eligible customers include those within the city limits of Ashland or Talent, as well as those within the urban growth boundaries of both cities.
